Voted PS3 Attitude's favorite Staff Writer 15 minutes in a row, this undisputed and unrelenting Trophy King is among the weirdest individuals you will ever read from. Or about. Aboot if you're Canadian. Entertainment is the game and you already know his name. It's Danny_D by the way.
Hello fellow constituents, Lady Liberty here (right hand pictured) to bring you North America’s PlayStation Store update.
The clear winners here are PSP and rhythm game owners with the release of adhocParty for the PSP and the usual derriere-load of songs released for Rock Band, The Beatles: Rock Band and Guitar Hero 5.
Hello there ladies and gents, Bawdy Big Ben here (pictured) with your weekly European PlayStation store update. And this one is fried gold.
Critter Crunch, Critter Crunch, Critter Crunch! Say that one three times fast and then wipe the spit off your monitor, you sprayer not sayer. The PS3 Attitude team reviewed this one a while back for us Euro folk, go read then buy; not in that particular order. Might as well buy then read, you still won’t regret it.
Hello avid internet reader, I’m the Biggest Ben ever named (pictured) here to deliver unto thee today’s PlayStation Store update.
A modest update, yes, but we have been promised better times ahead. As soon as next week actually; that’s not so bad eh?
The title is 100% true if all you care about on a Thursday night is a decent PlayStation Store update to spend money on and get free stuff from. Tonight we get both.
Price drops? Check. PSone classics? Check. Demos? Check. Free add-ons? Check. Cool videos and freakin’ sweet themes? Check.
Big Ben here (pictured), ready to tell you all about the self proclaimed ‘sucky’ PlayStation Store update of the week.
Although they tried to make it up to us by dropping the hell out of certain games for a limited time, it pretty much looks like any regular old European update. Not that big.
Did it just get warm around here? Aww Phreaky, that’s disgusting. Okay everybody, out of the pool. The Inferno Pool that is, which debuts in North America today. Check out our Inferno Pool review circa June 1st 2009, and did we mention that we totally pwned* Inferno Pool developers Dark Energy at their own game?
Good things came in today, the second Ratchet And Clank Future demo (featuring the furry one) and a Fat Princess demo for those yet to succumb to the allure of magical cake. We can vouch for Fat Princess; it’s totally awesome and includes a free new map, New Pork City.
Good news everyone! Today’s update did not suck egg yolks. In a related matter, next week’s update will suck egg yolks and then some. This was made official in the EU PSBlog, citing some ‘behind the scenes’ work that needs to be done.
Maybe SCEE’s entire IT crowd needs to go to rehab or something…we wonder if they tried turning it off and then back on again? But never mind that, look at the good stuff we got today and hope that it will get you through the drought.
Trine, Oddworld, Ractchet and Clank Future, Critter Crunch, Dragon Ball, Queen, The Beatles… Where to begin? Price updates of course! Lumines Supernova, Burnout Paradise and Siren all get price drops.
Get your Trine on, reminisce with Oddworld, check out that crack with the Ratchet and Clank demo, sample the delicious bugs with the Crtitter Crunch demo or let out the beast out in Dragon Ball: Raging Blast demo. Are you not entertained?
Today you can treat that adorable little monkey looking aberration (also known as EyePet) to a couple of downloadable packs. One free, one not free at all.
But who could keep up the free DLC movement alive today? Midnight Club and Cross Edge, that’s who. Free police car pack and power up pack +, but we’re not sure which pack belongs to which game.
You read that right; train like a real astronaut in Kennedy Space Center and play as a clueless one in SEGA’s Planet 51 The Videogame.
And the best part of it all? You don’t even have to pre-order, buy, or even like the Planet 51 movie or game to enter the sweepstakes. But lying about loving both the game and the movie must be in one of the sweepstake’s rules. So how exactly do you throw your name into the hat?
Jack Tretton, SCEA’s President, CEO and coolest Sony guy besides Kevin Butler has a message for you new PlayStation owners. Welcome to the PlayStation Nation, population awesome.
He then goes on to quote some numbers, percentages, hardware sales increase, and how Sony beat all competition in September. All of them.
It took a while, but Trine is finally hitting the Americas of the Northern persuasion this Thursday. Why the delay? You are asking the wrong people buddy.
Even if you ask the right people, say Nobilis’ Product Manager Olivier Vermillie for example, all you would get is a big fat “sorry folks”. At least that’s what 120+ people got from Nobilis over at the PlayStation.Blog.
We have two brand new games added to the weird name mix today; .detuned and topatoi. The long as hell to type Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars makes a return as well, in the form of a limited time price drop. But .detuned has our full attention this week, we can’t wait to see what we come up with our music collection.
BUZZ is also staging a comeback with BUZZ! Junior: Monster Rally and a new space question pack that Buzz Aldrin would be proud of. Mushroom Wars, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation (PSone), and a demo for NBA 2K10 flesh out today’s update/ Excuse us while we get our umlauts on with Brutal Legend’s Rock Band pack. Kyle! Where are you?
Yes, the rumors are true. There was another AAA title released this week. You may have heard of it, it’s pretty freaking loud. We are talking about Brütal Legend of course, which today gets a Rock Band three-pack from Tenacious D, Testament and fellow umlaut enthusiasts Motörhead. Let there be rock.
And speaking of rock, if you use your PlayStation 3 for listening to rocking tunes (who doesn’t, it only does everything) there’s a nifty little ‘game’ that will enhance your listening experience by adding a visual, albeit kinda freaky one.
Nature is gross, but Critter Crunch is cute even when there’s upchucking involved. One look at that fat and furry gerbil/toad crossover and you’ll be sold too. Or not, we hear you. Critter Crunch may not be for everybody, but it tickles our collective fancies.
We’ll skip over this week’s selection of a PSOne ‘Classic’, and get right to the add-on content.
Add $10 (excuse us, $9.98) to your DiRT 2 bill and get everything in the game unlocked. Get musical with LittleBigPlanet, RPG your way of a paper bag with Fallout 3’s new add-ons or pay for the privilege of pretend golfing in the Riviera Golf Course in Tiger Woods PGA Tour.
We won’t shy away from the fact that we have been waiting to get our Europoean old-school on with Digger HD. We won’t shy away from the fact that labeling A Bug’s Life as a PSOne Classic is just plain wrong. Who camped out for a midnight release of A Bug’s Life? No really, stand up so we can beat you with a pointy stick.
Ahem, where were we? Oh yes. Digger HD is live in the EU! If you were alive enough back then (and still have your memories), why not relive the good old days with this updated and upgraded PSN remake?
You already know this, but here we go again. The Bayonetta demo is live on the Japanese PlayStation Store. We recommend you give Devil May Get PMS the good old college try; or at least watch this video of us destroying the demo.
If you feel a little lost, there’s also a Bayonetta video that you can watch to get a better sense of the story; even if you end up being more confused about it.
You read that right. North America is next in line for a puke-a-thon of the most adorable proportions; and it will only cost you $6.99 American/Canadian. Europe is promised the same ‘I can’t believe I’m playing a puking game’ experience at a fair pricing, but at a later date.
For the unaware and/or slightly grossed out readers out there, Critter Crunch is not really about puking. Critter Crunch is about force feeding critters until they explode, thus releasing their juicy innards for the protagonist Biggs to eat. Then he pukes it to feed his offspring.
October 1st, 2009 marked the worldwide debut of the PSPgo; Sony’s latest PSP redesign with downloadable games and ultra portability in mind. That got me thinking, could the PlayStation 3 ever get the go redesign? Has Sony Computer Entertainment even toyed with the idea?
A lone document in an unsecured public FTP site had the answer to all of my questions. The PS3go was indeed under development but it was canceled before hitting the production line. The answer lied in a ten point feature sheet of an unreleased secret press release.
